The Big Lunch - getting people together in Central Bedfordshire

The Big Lunch is the UK's annual get together for neighbours.  The event will take place 5-6 June 2021. 

About the Big Lunch

Every year in June since the idea began in 2009, millions of people stop what they're doing and get together with neighbours in a nationwide act of community and friendship. 

The idea is that by starting simple, all sorts of friendships, ideas and projects can come out of a Big Lunch. It gets people together and talking — and with a few inspired folks, it can lead to people doing more within their community, and tackling the issues that matter to them most.

Organising a Big Lunch shouldn't be overly complicated, or require a lot of resources or money. By making use of what you already have and doing a little research to see what others can share. 

Please ensure you follow the current guidelines and support for meetings and events.
